    1)According to company figures, the age of a first time customer is normally distributed with an average age of 29.8 years and a standard deviation of 4.5 years. The marketing department has designed a new advertising strategy and wants to determine if this has had any impact on the average viewing age. Since the new ad campaign began, sales have been made to 64 new customers whose average age is 31.1 years. Testing at the 5% level of significance, has the new campaign had any impact?

    3) A package delivery company frequently makes trips to a small neighboring community. There are two roads to the other town, Highway A and Route B. Since time is money for the company, the manager wants to know if there is a significant difference in the average time it takes to make a round trip to the neighboring community. After testing each road 36 times, the following statistics were collected:

    Highway A Route B
    Mean 18 20
    Sample Dev. 5.3 10
    Size 36 36

    Test the hypothesis that there is not a significant time difference between the two options at the 5% level of significance.

    p-value =
